I just saw this video on Bill Lind, a public transport advocate, making a conservative case for public transport in the United States – pointing out that public transport provides choice and use less subsidies than highways.

As a libertarian, I would go further: as cities as diverse as Tokyo and Dehli show, public transport can operate without operational and capital subsidies – a little fiscal discipline, the good sense in not letting transit workers unionize and the use of markets can go a long way.
